Dave would it be possible to have an avatar that changes say, every five minutes? One that we could load a number of photo into the avatar entry, and it would run through the entries? Smiling

I agree Can we use animated gifs as avatars too?

There's nothing stopping you from changing your avatar as often as you like, but I am not going to set it up to be automatically changing.

As for animated avatars, I have to be honest and say that I hate other forums that do that. It is way too distracting in my opinion.

I change my avatar frequently. If I take a picture that really pleases me I make a change.

Is it possible the older posts could hold the old Avatar?

I would find animated avatars to me distracting also.
Guess I should get in the habit of changing my avatar at least once a month. Smiling

I think your avatar is basically your logo and changing it dilutes the impact of the message you are trying to convey.
That is why I don't change mine. Of course that is just my opinion, and I am sure most people don't look at it the same way I do Smiling

If an avatar expresses a message I guess my ever changing one expresses my love for the wide variety of beauty I am blessed to see. Saw this Osteospermum yesterday. I don't grow them but wow...they are gorgeous.

I think you're both right. With Paul, I expect to see new photos as his avatar. With others, I recognize them by their same image all the time. Smiling

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and a sweet heart is beautiful. I love all of your post Paul, oh yes, and all your avatars.

And I also recognize Josephine as soon as I see her Texas Blue Bonnets. It says so much about where she is from.

When it comes right down to it, I love it all. That is one of the things that makes ATP special, is our diversity. Lovey dubby
